“Water,” the hit breakout song from Tyla, has officially reached RIAA-certified Platinum status.
The musical achievement means the South African star has earned 1 million unit sales in the U.S with the song.
It’s the first Platinum achievement for Tyla, who released “Water” via Fax/Epic Records in July.
The social media popular song, along with it’s accompanying viral water bottle dance, earned the 21-year-old singer her first Billboard #1 song and her first career Grammy award nomination: The song is up for Best African Music Performance at the 66th annual awards show on February 4.
“Water” kicked off a series of exciting music events for Tyla, which include her upcoming The Tyla Tour and her self-titled debut album, expected to release on March 1.
